Yes. That is precisely all I've been talking about.
Neta1991 said:... Because the ancient Assyrians started to deport people in the Neo-Assyrian Empire, not before Neo-Assyrian Empire began.....And it was during the Neo-Assyrian Empire they were assyrianizied......
How does that affect the heritage and identity of Suryoye? I've demonstrated that Suryoye were always Assyrians (regardless of any Aramean admixture). Both Suryoye and Suraye descend from the Assyrians. The Akkadian-Sumerian population completely mixed with other populations including Arameans, yet it continued on through an "Assyrian" identity.
